Meet the Peepers

It's been awhile .......
But it's time you got caught up on...............
A lot of changes this year....
Pretty much a whole new crew this year.
It seems the other chickens went on strike for more pay (worms) and
when we didn't meet their terms they all walked off the set
(or died and was eaten by a raccoon or something).
Yes, they will be missed but I have learned that is the
way with chickens.
I had them for 4 years and they were happy, free ranging chickens.
This episode I want to introduce you to the peepers.
None of my hens have ever had babies before!
They are the cutest!!
But I was a hot mess.  I flew to my computer and searched for how to
care for baby chicks.
Oh my!  You should separate them from the flock because the other
chickens will peck them to death.
They need to be in a clean environment and kept warm
and bedding changed every day.
Watch for pasty butt and scaly mites and make sure you worm them.
I am not ready for this!!
All I have ready is little tutus for them to wear!!
I decided to do the best I could and let their mommy take care of them..:)
My son and I found some wasp larvae and gave it to them and they loved it!!

They are just the cutest and mom takes great care of them.

Hahahahaha! Wake up!!  Just in case y'all were going to sleep on me!!
The sad thing is that I know these people....they come visit us at the camp
every hunting season.  I try not to stand too close to
Just saying....
Back to the peepers....
 Here is a cute video for you.

You can see why I call them little peepers...:)
Please ignore the high pitched shrill of a Southern redneck chicken mama...;)
I'm sorry I have been so absent from my blog.  I am hoping
to start blogging more often.
Thanks for hanging in there with me.

They are adorable, ours try to hatch eggs but I guess they give up and nothing happens unless I incubate.

Oh my goodness, those little peepers are so darling! I am sorry to hear of the demise of some of the Kardashians, though. Did someone really get eaten by a raccoon?? I was glad to see this post too...I miss your posts! Looking forward to more! :)
